HSE and Local Authority Investigations

Businesses of all types and sizes are bound by the UK's health and safety legislation, with this covering numerous obligations relating to general health and safety duties, liability for workplace accidents that result in injury or death, as well as duties under RIDDOR. The Regulatory and Compliance Solicitors at Wilford Smith have expertise across many different sectors and can provide industry-specific legal guidance should you find yourself subject to an investigation relating to health and safety in the workplace. Our lawyers strive to offer clear, straight-forward and jargon-free advice throughout any investigation so that you can best protect your position and that of your business.

Responsibility for carrying out health and safety investigations rests with the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) and the local authority, with a wide range of tools open to investigators to support them in their role, including interviews under caution. The result of this may be enforcement proceedings, with a range of options open to the HSE and local authorities, including advice on good practice to criminal prosecutions. Our Regulatory and Compliance Lawyers have many years of experience when it comes to negotiating with investigators, as well as an enviable reputation for expertise in advocacy and litigation should a prosecution be undertaken. We take a ruthless approach to defending our clients' interests.
